Kusudama paper paper balloons

The origami technique is multifaceted, it includes not only the addition of a variety of models from a sheet of paper, but also modular shapes that involve the manufacture of identical elements and then combining them into one whole. It is according to this principle that Kusudama is made, as the flower balls are created from individual elements.

The Japanese word "kusudama" translates as "drug ball." Previously, the Japanese placed various medicinal herbs inside the Kusudams and prevented it from the patient's bed. And nowadays, these magic balls are used simply to decorate and decorate the rooms.

Work stages:

Take a blue strip of paper and bend it from left to right in half.

018 (3)

Then return to the original position. Thus, the middle of the strip is visible.

018 (4)

The upper left corner of the strip bend up to the middle.

018 (5)

Do the same with the second angle, that is, the right angle. Only it needs to be bent from top to bottom.

018 (6)

Now bend the upper left corner down and the right corner up to the center line.

018 (7)

018 (8)

Repeat steps 3 and 4 again.

018 (9)

018 (10)

Next, bend the workpiece in half.

018 (11)

Now carefully deploy everything to the initial position of the leaf.

018 (12)

Take a white paper blank and bend in half.

018 (13)

018 (14)

Then pull back about 0.5 - 0.7 mm down and bend again.

018 (15)

Carefully fold the accordion leaf to the middle.

At the end of the last time you do not need to bend the corrugation, the protrusion should remain.

018 (16)

018 (17)

018 (18)

With the second side of the blank, do the same. The result should be like this.

018 (19)

Now you need to bend the lower left and upper right corner.

018 (20)

On the reverse side, the billet looks like this.

018 (21)

Next, take the blue blank and put a white corrugation in the middle.

018 (22)

Then bend on both sides along the intended lines.

018 (23)

018 (24)

All the detail we bend along the lines of the blue blank. It ends up like this.

018 (25)

018 (26)

018 (27)

018 (28)

The white center should be glued together with white glue.

018 (29)

There should be 30 such pieces.

018 (30)

Now build the ball. Take one module and grease the glue pocket near the corrugation.

018 (31)

Glue the second module in the same way as in the photo.

018 (32)

So glue together 5 blanks.

018 (33)

018 (34)

This Kusudama is perfect for a beginner. It consists of only 30 modules that are very easy to fold.

Kusudama ball

For work, you will need 30 paper squares with sides from 8 to 10 cm. It is very convenient to use sheets of blocks for records, but you can cut squares from colored paper. In this embodiment, 8.5 cm squares are taken in five different colors.

Let's start the module folding. Take a square of paper and fold it in half.

sonobe-shar (2)

Expand and re-fold the edges towards the midline.

sonobe-shar (3)

On opposite sides, bend the corners to the first horizontal line.

sonobe-shar (4)

Bend the corners again.

sonobe-shar (5)

Add the sides to the center of the square.

sonobe-shar (6)

Make two diagonal folds.

sonobe-shar (7)

Repeat the action in a different direction to get such a pattern of lines.

sonobe-shar (8)

Turn away one side of the workpiece and put a corner there.

sonobe-shar (9)

Return the bend into place.

sonobe-shar (10)

On the other hand, we fill the edge of the paper into the formed pocket to make a diamond.

sonobe-shar (11)

Bend the diamond in half.

sonobe-shar (12)

Triangle fold to the center of the module.

sonobe-shar (13)

Do the same with the other edge. Module is ready.

sonobe-shar (14)

When all 30 pieces have been assembled, we proceed to the assembly of the kusudams. We slip the corner of one part into the pocket of another.

sonobe-shar (15)

We form a pyramid of three modules.

sonobe-shar (16)

In the future, when assembling, we focus on the "asterisk" of the five pyramids. This is how the correctly assembled side of Kusudama should look like.

sonobe-shar (17)

We continue to collect. If the modules were made carefully, then everything will turn out smoothly and without glue. The last 2-3 modules are difficult to insert.Make sure your creation does not fall apart.

sonobe-shar (18)

Our craft with your own hands is ready.

sonobe-shar (19)

You can decorate it with a ribbon or tassel and attach a loop for hanging. And you can leave it like that.
